    I don't think it's any where high enough. With a really high adjustable comb it might work.

    You would need some awefully tall posts for the adjustable comb. Even if you get it tall enough, the rest of the stock still may not fit right.

    Nope. The factory adjustable comb on their trap stock is barely sufficient. One of their major faults!!

    The Pro Rib is 0.160 of an inch taller in the rear than a Trap Special rib.

    If you have a Trap Special stock, it will work.

    Jt,

    Another option is if the body of the stock is OK and fits pretty well you can just make a new comb piece for the stock that will fill the void and bring the comb to be at eye level without the gap between the top of the stock and the bottom of the comb. Just a thought we have saved several stocks by doing this and it has helped the shooter with a more comfortable fit on the face.

    The biggest problem is whatever you have to jack the comb up by, effectively lowers your drop at the heel by that much. In other words, if you have 2.5" drop @ heel, and you raise your comb 1" to compensate for a rib that's taller than the stock was built for, you now have 3.5" drop @ heel, if not adjusted.

    You will need LONG PINS. For the comb.

    I'm dealing with that now. I'm at the top of my posts and my rib is all the way down and still feel I'm under the bird. A double decker bus can fit under my comb and I had to drop my recoil pad to compensate. Not complaining just added to the discussion. Going to have Dennis make a custom stock when my chunk of furniture is dry enough. Dave T.

    I have added a 1/2 inch delrin rib on top of my K-80 sport rib, which is appoximately the height of the pro sport. I also added new longer posts from Kreighoff (about $85, they have these in stock at Ottsville) to bring the comb up accordingly. The longer posts raise the comb nicely. Richard
